Not Quite Zen

{But Working On It}

Just a modern day momma trying to find the balance between life's craziness and zen, with a little bit of fun along the way.

Finding What's Right For You

Remarkable. That's Me.

Many people look at me, I wonder what they see. Do they see a woman, a wife, Or a simple mother of three? A remarkable being, Is what I hope to be. I’m not built like a model, Or as tall as a tree. But I am as rare as a gem As sweet as a honey bee. I am a remarkable woman, My loved ones would agree. It’s the love that I give, The hugs they receive. The food that I cook. And the goals I help them achieve. I am classy, intelligent, Ambitious and sexy. I am charismatic, creative, Selfless, and sometimes cheeky. When people look at me, I already know what they see They see a remarkable woman, a dutiful wife, And a wonderful mother of three.

Welcome 2015!

Hey everyone!

I hope that you had a great Christmas and an even better start to the new year. I know this post came a little late, but I have really been busy with the kids at home since they have been off for the past two weeks. Don't get me wrong, I absolutely love my kids, but I am so ready for them to go back to school. And now that little man is walking, things have been like a mad house around here.

So far the year has started off pretty positive.  It has really been all about family, which I think is everyone's goal so far.  So it looks like we are on the right track.  These past couple of weekends, we have managed to have a few family get-togethers.  Hopefully this is a sign of things to come.


Lately all the talk has been over "New Beginnings" leading up to the new year. I know there have been some goals I have set for myself (New Year, New Me) but I can't help but constantly think about how I can make the new year count. One thing I want to try and remain focused on is taking care of myself. I have been focusing so hard on my blogging numbers that I forgot the reason why I started this in the first place (it's kind of surprising how easy it is to get sucked into the whole social media world).

This was just a fun way to put all of my thoughts down. This also helped me stay focused on taking care of myself. So I am going to get back to that. It is so easy to become engulfed in this whole idea of getting followers, pageviews, fans etc. I had to snap out of it and remember that I don't need anyone's approval to be me. I am going to keep doing what I do and being who I am. If you like me for me, then great. I am happy to have you in my circle. If not, then keep it moving. I write because I have something to say. I write because I want to be heard. I write because I really enjoy doing it and because it is fun. Maybe someday, I will have tons and tons of followers and fans, and that would be awesome. But, I know it takes time. So, for now, I am just going focus on doing me and enjoying the ride.
On a great side note, I have been chosen to do a review for Charmin's Ultra Soft toilet paper. Pretty cool huh? If I do good on this review, I may be considered to do some more in the future.  That means I may get the opportunity to try out some great products for free. So I am super excited about that.

Another thing that I have found to be pretty fun has been trying out new dishes to make and taking pictures of them.  I have always talked about creating a family cookbook for the kids, so I think this year I am going to focus on recording the different dishes and photos as a little side project. You can catch them on my instagram account @maritza.levy, along with my other family photos. But I think this year I will also try to incorporate "Dishes Diverse" into my blogging repertoire. Which will include pictures and recipes. So be on the lookout for that.

So, it looks like I have a few things to look forward to this year. What about you? How are you going to welcome 2015?
